Bash Functions and Rails Migrations
Open and edit your last migration with a single command! If you hate opening migrations as much as I do then you will love this tip. Since migrations begin with a datetime group, create an easy to use bash function to quickly edit that migration.
vim ~/.bashrc and add the following function:
vim `ls db/migrate/*.rb | tail -n 1`
Finally, reload your ~/.bashrc file:
source ~/.bashrc. Tada! Now all you have to do is run the
elm command to edit the last migration you created.
Now I can't take all the credit but I found this solution on StackOverflow and was answered by Michaël Witrant. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14099155/edit-rails-migration-file-in-one-command
